Air Jordan 3 Reimagined “White Cement”
Release date: March 11, 2023
The Air Jordan 3 is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a return to retail in its most recognizable colorway,
The Air Jordan 3 Reimagined “White Cement” will feature a style modeled after the original 1988 release and express the timeless combination of “Summit White/Fire Red/Cement Grey.” Elephant pattern overlays are placed at premium white leather uppers’ toe and heel areas with perforated sections. White laces, red insoles printed with contrast black branding, and red tongues with Jumpman designs serve as further details. Yellowed eyelets, “NIKE AIR” heel counters, and midsoles with gray rubber outsoles complete the shoe’s aesthetic.
The Air Jordan 3 “White Cement Reimagined,” which retails for USD 210, is now anticipated to be released on March 11 as part of Jordan Brand’s Spring 2023 collection in a complete family-size run.
Jarritos x Nike SB Dunk Low
Release date: Spring 2023
The Jarritos x Nike SB Dunk Low was first reported in late September, but it may have been unofficially unveiled recently.
The Jarritos SB Dunk’s upper combines off-white leather and canvas, with the latter material preferring a beige color with rich green profile swooshes. Traditional Nike SB logos are stylized as the Jarritos logo at the tongue’s top, further energizing the otherwise relatively subdued sneaker with additional green and orange flair. Finally, there is an orange and green outsole that Peter Moore created.
Nike and Jarritos have yet to release any official release details or images. It will be available for USD 130 through Nike and a few select skate stores in the upcoming months.
Air Jordan 1 High 85 “Black White”
Release date: February 2023
The Air Jordan 1 Hi ’85, the most accurate reissue of the 1985 design to date, will be released by Jordan Brand for the fourth consecutive year.
The original black and white colorway from 1985 will be recreated on the Air Jordan 1 Hi ’85 with a smooth black leather overlay over a soft leather base with conventional nylon tongues and mesh interior linings. One of the early releases of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG, this colorway was last seen in 2014. Although a specific release date is unknown, February is the intended month for the $200 MSRP.
Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1
Release date: Summer 2023
2005 saw the creation of the Nike Air Force 1 colorway for Fat Joe’s Terror Squad. The pairs are among the most sought-after AF1 hues, even though they were never released to the general public. On November 2, Fat Joe hinted at a future release of the coveted Nike Air Force 1 Low “Terror Squad” colorway during a New York Knicks game.
The shoe’s top is white with brown overlays and pink details on the tongue tag, insoles, panel swoosh, insoles, and outsole. The embroidered ankle and heel insignia include Terror Squad branding, and white, brown, and pink lacing variations are available.
Although Nike hasn’t officially announced it, the upcoming Terror Squad x Air Force 1 retro is anticipated to hit stores in the summer of 2023.

Bronson has taken the “dad shoe” and spruced it up with a multicolored arrangement to fit his upbeat personality. Uppers are made from various materials and colors, including volt mesh backgrounds, brown leather quarter panels, murky olive mudguards, and purple and pink hiking laces. Tongues replaced their traditional New Balance moniker with a “Baklava” hit, referring to his recently launched digital store, Baklava Flea Market.
